Will be interesting but black cat ain't what is used to be. Quality is nothing like the original stuff.

Exactly mate the stuff in the 90's was unreall now the regulations and law really have put the fuse out so to speak

the 90's were probably the best time to purchase fireworks really wish airbombs would come back they were cheap and cheerfull fun :(

There is some great pyro now though Stephen, Brothers, Royal Party and Absolute is mostly good quality. :) The prices are much higher now like.

Airbombs are still available from collectors pre reg ones that is. :p

Standard was Bought by Chinese-based Black Cat Fireworks in 1998 and all firework manufacture switched to China soon after..
The Huddersfield site is now the UK headquarters for Black Cat, and acts as the sales, marketing and distribution centre for both Black Cat and Standard ranges.
